Our program incorporates the “Three Es” (E3) of Sustainability.

Sustainability isn’t just about the environment. It’s about developing business practices that benefit the environment, the communities affected by these practices and the organization’s bottom line.

Sustainability balances the three E’s:

  • The environment
  • The economy
  • Social equity

Colorado Mountain College offers sustainability courses in:

  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Ecology and natural resource management
  • Sustainable business
  • Ethics and social responsibility

In these courses, you’ll learn how business, personal and institutional decisions affect the world’s people and economic well-being.

With your degree, you’ll be able to launch a career in:

  • Public administration
  • Marketing and communications for the “green economy”
  • Business management
  • Local, state, and federal government
  • Regulatory agencies
  • Consulting
  • International development

Why the Sustainability Studies program at Colorado Mountain College?

Colorado is becoming the epicenter of sustainability. Green industries are flocking to the state, and the clean energy industry is booming in Colorado.

At Colorado Mountain College, you’ll have an opportunity to work on real-world challenges in a beautiful, rugged landscape where many organizations and business are working out sustainability on the ground.

That means you’ll leave Colorado Mountain College armed, not only with a degree, but with hands-on experience and contacts in the field.

“We need sustainability degrees today in the same way we needed computer science degrees in the 80′s.  It’s the revolution, it’s the future. CMC’s new program is a welcome and needed addition to the field.”
